What I’m Doing: Selling Shoes

jessica-simpson-black3Several years ago, I worked a holiday job at the Macy’s Mall of America store. If any of you read my other blog, you know all about those harrowing days.

On the plus side, I did get a nice discount, and I used that discount frequently. During that time, I also had the idea that maybe I would become a girl who wears high heels. I never had enough coordination to wear heels, and was too impatient to deal with the “getting used to them” phase. But all of a sudden, I decided I would be that girl and I would wear high heels. So I bought a few pairs. Quite a few pairs. Because I sucked at walking in them, and general all-around wearing them in general, I would wear sandals or some other flat, comfortable shoe while commuting to work, then I’d change into my heels once I was at my desk. I wore them during the work day, then would change out of them when it was go time.

Apparently the saying, “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks,” was applicable to me and high heels.

So I need to get rid of them. Most are them are new and never been worn (what a moron I was!), some have only been worn a handful of times (and only indoors) and only a couple have ever actually been worn outside. I’d prefer to sell them rather than just give them away…so I setup a Craigslist ad to see what happens: http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/hnp/clo/4475452449.html. I’m pricing them all at $20, which is a loss for me, but better than nothing!

Have you ever sold clothing or shoes via Craigslist? Dan has sold a car and tons of car parts, I bought a table and chair set….never clothing. We’ll see. Wish me luck!
